Fear Factor has staff trembling at elementary event

Students at Maple Lake Elementary brought the school year to a big finish with a Fear Factor challenge for the elementary teachers.

Students earned the special event by exceeding the Trash to Cash goal for the 2007-2008 school year of $6,500 with a total of $7,574. That money was raised through bringing in a variety of items such as cell phones and printer cartridges for recycling, along with food package labels and product points.

The Fear Factor event featured a hot dog eating contest, a pepper eating contest, bobbing for apples with worms floating in the water, a tri-cycle race, a ‘stick your hand in goo’ guessing contest, and an ‘I’ll eat it, will you?’ contest.
